I think we can live with that... ;)

Really? "Buffering"? Note I was talking about "permanently" converting
strokes to a shape so that everything becomes a shape.

Indeed. And thick outlines don't become smaller than a hairline when
scaled down, so any line is at least 1 screen pixel wide, in any

We probably would need to specially mark shapes, that were outlines
before, so that during the rendering process we can treat them in a
special way (ie. special case for hair lines).

The conversion from outline to shape would not be difficult, by the
way, and could be done without changing renderers in the first step.

Can't tell you exactly but dotted lines are converted to shapes in
SWF6-. Since I know there are lots of options for such line styles in
newer Flash versions I'm pretty sure they are still converted to
shapes during export, so there is never anything like a dotted outline
in a SWF file (and yes, it does scale).
